    There's only one CR123 plant in the United States, owned by Panasonic, and I think it's in Georgia.

    I don't remember the name of a flashlight I sold. Help! I want another!

    Lenslight was a division of Chapman lights (a company that supplies Hollywood with studio lights). They are no longer made.

    SureFire R1 Lawman

    The light came with a cradle for two 123's. Wouldnt be too hard to mod it to accept a common 18650. You'd lose the in-body charging, but it may be an option if a rechargeable 18650 is preferred, or the proprietary cell is no longer produced (and I dont think it is, though SF may still have some).

    SureFire R1 Lawman

    It's an 18650, but soldered and engineered into that proprietary carrier. I've tried swapping a cell, but the amount of retrofitting made it not a fun task, and didnt really work out well.

    Olight Warrior Mini Stopped Working After Airplane Ride

    It was x-rayed....probably zapped something in the head or battery (if it's protected).

    Pocket clip for SureFire Fury DFT?

    The DFT is tough because of the body diameter and the new tailcap design does not allow the use of those clips that relied on the body of the light to mate with the tailcap. I have a solution, though. Streamlight's Protac HL-USB light has a removable body attached pocket clip. It snaps onto the...

    The Surefire 6P used to have press-fit lenses?

    The early 6P's had pressed in Lexan lenses. Surefire would include a nickel in the replacement kit, and to replace the lens, you'd use a dowel or similar to press against the nickel the pop the lens into the bezel.

    Surefire Fury 2018 dual fuel 18650/Cr123

    I think i found the problem...After receiving another tailcap and conducting several battery changes, I noticed that the retaining ring that holds the actual switch inside the tailcap becomes loose. Loose enough that the center ring and spring on the switch can connect the metal retaining ring...

    Surefire Fury 2018 dual fuel 18650/Cr123

    ...and...tailcap three is toast...waiting for word from SF to send the whole light in, not just receiving another tailcap. The light was on for five or so minutes. Then it won't shut off, and the cap has the burnt electronics smell to it. Just for info, the light is drawing 5.4-5.5 amps, then...

    Maglite mag-tac rechargeable issues?

    I found the cell at, but the actual light, except for some header pics, is no longer available at I'm awaiting confirm of the discontinued status from Mag themselves. My info came from a retailer who is discounting the remaining lights.

    Maglite mag-tac rechargeable issues?

    I picked up one in 2015. Had a tailcap issue, and was swapped by Maglite. Has been fine, since. Unfortunately, the light has been discontinued, and the batteries are now impossible to find. And, since the battery is so specific and unique that fabricating a replacement would be very tough. Once...

    Sold/Expired WTB: Terralux SL20X

    Re: Terralux SL20X discontinued?? Unfortunately, the incan. SL-20X is no longer manufactured, and the SL-20L has probably eliminated the need for a drop-in for the incan models. I've contacted Streamlight about updating the SL-20L's 350 lumen output, as it can't compete with it's only full size...

    Surefire Fury 2018 dual fuel 18650/Cr123

    HHHmm...after five minutes or so, mine becomes HOT...almost not holdable hot. Starting to wonder of my light is actually defective at the head/LED...Maybe pulling too much current, hence the excessive heat and malfunctioning tail cap switches. Going to do some tests...

    Streamlight Stinger and Strion- USB future dim?

    Streamlight's USB-charging 18650's have been out for a few months. AFAIK, there are no plans for an external-charging vua USB battery for the Strion or Stinger.
